31 Dec

TMZ.com:

Porsha Williams must be bucking for a promotion on RHOA — because the chick who got demoted for having boring story lines … just got arrested for blazing down an Atlanta highway.

TMZ has learned the “Real Housewives” star was pulled over today for allegedly speeding — cops say 78 mph in a 55 zone — and they claim she was driving on a suspended license.

Cops hauled Porsha off to jail … where she was booked. We’re told she posted $1,726 to bond out.

Still, she did some time. Hear that ‘Housewives’ producers? Porsha’s gangsta now.

With all the drama and fights Porsha’s been in since her divorce I guess we’re starting to see signs of why ex-husband Kordell really left her.

30 Dec

People.com:

Teresa Giudice is making the most of her final few days of freedom.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 42, took her children to the Crystal Springs Resort and Spa in New Jersey for a day of skiing on Saturday.

Giudice – glammed-up in full makeup – hung out with friends outside while her kids took to the slopes.

With 10 days remaining until her 15-month prison sentence begins on Jan. 5, the mother of four looked “super stressed out,” according to an onlooker. “She kept uncomfortably rubbing her neck.” 

On March 4, Giudice pled guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.

While she was mostly just sipping water on Saturday, the onlooker said that at pone point Giudice and her two companions ordered a round of Fireball shots.

On Friday night, Giudice and her husband, Joe, attended a performance by her 13-year-old daughter, Gia, and her music group, 3KT.

Yolanda Foster Compares Friendship With Brandi Glanville to ‘Having a Dog That Doesn’t Behave’

28 Dec

USmagazine.com:

Is that supposed to be a compliment? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster stopped by Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, Dec. 23, and was asked about her somewhat unlikely friendship with costar Brandi Glanville. In an attempt to explain their bond, Foster likened the relationship to that of a dog and his owner.

“My friendship with Brandi…it’s like having a child doesn’t behave right,” she began. “It’s like your dog. On the days that the dog doesn’t behave right, you don’t kick him to the curb. You keep trying. So that’s my relationship with Brandi.”

The 50-year-old Bravo-lebrity went on to say she believes Glanville has good intentions. “I know deep down in there, she’s a really good person, and you don’t just always kick people to the side because they don’t behave the way you want them to behave,” Foster explained of the Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders author.

“I think Brandi probably expects people to kick her to the curb,” she continued. “There’s something psychologically going on, and I’m not going to give that to her. I’m gonna stick by her until we get her behaving properly and being the good person that she is.”

The RHOBH star also opened up to Cohen about her ongoing struggle with Lyme disease, which has been well-documented on recent seasons of the show. “I am struggling at the moment,” she admitted to a fan who called in to ask about her health. “It’s been a long journey. You know, it’s really my life. Every day I wake up trying to figure out how to get over this.”

Some days, of course, are better — or worse — than others. “Today especially is not a great day,” she shared. “But unfortunately, it’s the cards that life dealt me, and I’m gonna figure this out, because I know there’s millions of other people suffering just like I do.”

Told by Cohen that she’s been good about putting on a brave face for the cameras, Foster replied, “I think that’s the most frustrating part of this disease, that you look so normal from the outside.” So even though she looks fine, she feels terrible. “It’s a silent killer,” she said. “It’s an invisible disability.”

Marisa Zanuck Sued By Day Spa

28 Dec

TMZ.com:

A key player on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” not only shattered the tranquility of a spa, she downright broke it … this according to a crazy new lawsuit.

Marisa Zanuck runs a real estate company in Bev Hills, which is located next door to Vida Emanuel European Day Spa, which prides itself on a total zen experience.

Marisa — always one to impress — decided she needed to spruce up her offices, so a construction crew came in at 9AM and the soothing Enya soundtrack was overpowered by jackhammers.

The spa owner says it was like a war scene … pieces of her wall crumbled, light fixtures fell off the wall, bottles of fancy oil crashed to the ground … it was a disaster.

She complained 3 times … to no avail, and says she was left with no choice but to scream through the broken walls at the workers.

The spa is suing Marisa for thousands of dollars in damages.

And that’s not a happy ending.

Phaedra Parks Confirms She Will Divorce Apollo Nida

26 Dec

People.com:

Despite being a housewife, Phaedra Parks’s marriage to Apollo Nida is over.

“We’re amicably resolving this marriage,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday. “We’re resolving this marriage … resolving to dissolve, yes,” she added.

As if to prove the amicability of their relationship, Parks, 43, noted that she speaks to her ex “at least five, six times a week, if not more.” 

The couple have two children together – Dylan, 1, and Ayden, 4. While Dylan is “too young” to understand that his father is away in Kentucky serving an eight-year sentence for fraud, Dylan is “definitely very aware,” Parks said. “It’s very tough for a 4-year-old.”

However, the kids are “definitely in contact” with their father, she added.

Though this is the first time that Parks has confirmed that she and Nida are arranging their divorce following five years of marriage, RHOA fans know that the relationship has been strained. Parks did not show up for Nida’s sentencing, and he accused her of abandoning him.

Nida even hired an attorney to divorce Parks before she could divorce him – “I despise everything about her, but I still love her,” he said.

Demetria McKinney Slams ‘Not Cool’ Phaedra Parks And NeNe Leakes

24 Dec

RadarOnline.com:

Demetria McKinney is one of the newbies on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she already knows how to serve up drama! In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, McKinney opened up about her beef with Phaedra Parks and NeNe Leakes, slamming the series vets and revealing what to expect from their feud.

“Do you have time for my thoughts on Phaedra?” McKinney asked during her talk with Radar.

“She is easily intimidated by everybody,” she unloaded. “I understand that life deals everybody a different deck and sometimes the hand you’re dealt isn’t necessarily fair, but turning bitter and turning on everybody around you is just not cool.”

McKinney said that she is “absolutely not” friends with Parks — and that the rumors circulating that Parks carried on an affair with a man reffered to as “Mr. Chocolate” are just karma.

“I know that she’s upset that information is out right now,” McKinney said. “I know it’s really just adding drama to the already drama full life. I can only say that I feel like karma is a b***h and it’s slapping her in the face right now!”

McKinney also said she believes that it’s wrong that Parks isn’t standing by her husband Apollo Nida, during his eight-year prison stint.

“For her to let him take the whole wrap, I think it’s just sad,” McKinney said. “You say so let’s not part through thick and thin and then once it gets thick with something you knew he was capable of, you go running and talking bad about him. It’s just adds to the persona.”

McKinney also doesn’t get along with NeNe Leakes.

“I came into this with a great deal of respect for everybody and I tried to start this journey, even kilter, on a even playing field and let people show me who they were,” she said. “And what I’ve seen from Nene Leakes doesn’t necessarily make me want to go running and connect with her.”

Yolanda Foster Is Spending the Holidays in a Hospital Bed

24 Dec

Wetpaint.com:

Yolanda Foster is perhaps the most adorable mom on the planet and even a hospital visit right before the holidays can’t put a frown on this lemon-lovin’ gal’s face. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been posting photos of herself in a hospital bed with family and friends rallying beside her during her Lyme disease battle. If this doesn’t provide ample amounts of Christmas cheer, we don’t know what will.

The 50-year-old supermodel first shared a photo of herself alongside son Anwar Hadid, daughter Gigi Hadid, and Cody Simpson (Gigi’s on-again boyfriend) in a hospital bed. “I can and I will beat this,” Yo captioned the photo. “#LymeDisease Blessed with my loves who inspire me to keep fighting on s—ty days like this!”

Yolanda has been in the hospital for a few days now, but we imagine her family is making things even a slight bit better. Yo’s husband, David Foster, even surprised her with a romantic dinner for two, proving he’s the best man ever. At the end of the day, at least this gorgeous blonde could cuddle with her kids and rest easy.

Bethenny Frankel Allegedly Acting Like A Diva Upon Return To ‘RHONY’

23 Dec

NYDailynews.com:

Bethenny Frankel seems to have forgotten how to be a “Housewife” during her absence from the reality show.

Confidenti@l is told that the returning star of the “Real Housewives of New York” — who’s not actually a Housewife anymore — is causing problems on set by being a “brat,” refusing to do scenes she considers “fake.” Her new approach is annoying co-stars – especially because many of them took pay cuts so Bravo could afford to bring Frankel back into the fold.

An insider at a party to celebrate “Housewife” Sonja Morgan’s cover of Latino Show magazine at the Vanessa Noel store tells us that Frankel, who Bravo hopes will breathe new life into the struggling franchise, was “standoffish” from the outset.

“It was the first big public event that Bethenny has filmed (since making her comeback). It’s Sonja’s big moment because she’s on the cover of the magazine,” said the source. “In marches Bethenny Frankel, dodging the paparazzi outside, refusing all the interviews, refusing to be photographed,” said the onlooker.

“She was even giving the Bravo team problems when they were trying to set up shots, too. The Bravo team’s job is to set up conversations and to direct and create the action to some degree. So Bethenny was trying to stonewall them every chance she’d get,” explained our source.

“For example, when they asked Bethenny to come join Sonja and a group of her friends to leaf through the magazine and “Ooh” and “Ahh,” Bethenny refused, saying, ‘I’m not an actress.’ She basically said, ‘I’m not going to do this; it’s fake.’ She’s a problem on the set.”

Porsha Williams Reveals The Real Reason She No Longer Holds A Peach On ‘RHOA’

21 Dec

Inquisitr.com:

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams recently explained the real reason behind Bravo’s decision to demote her. Following her season seven downgrade from official housewife to friend of the wives, Williams appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, where she revealed her failure to expose her dating life was likely the cause of her role change.

“What happened, I think … I was dating someone at the time, and of course, as part of the show when we sign up, it’s about showing who you date,” Williams explained to Cohen on his late-night show, according to a December 19 report by Reality Tea. “He was playing football, and his coach told him that he didn’t want him to film until later in the season. So unfortunately, I had filmed and shown some of my personal life, had told the producers that I would show him, but I couldn’t show him until the very, very end and by then it was a little too late.”

“They wanted a lot of the dating, and I totally get that because I’m coming from divorce, but I wanted them to film me performing ‘Flatline’ and my hair-line NAKED.”

Although Willliams was expecting to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta as an official housewife, she claimed to Cohen the demotion was a blessing in disguise.

“I found out towards the end but you know what? It actually was a little less stressful,” she said. “I love being part of the Bravo family. As you see, it just gives me more time to sit in and read.”

For his part, Cohen appeared to agree with Willliams’ reason for her demotion. In an interview earlier this year, via the Inquisitr, Cohen said he and the producers simply didn’t have enough of a story from Williams to garner her with an official housewife role.

As the Inquisitr reported, Williams released a statement regarding her Real Housewives of Atlanta demotion

“This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want let everyone to know that I loved being a ‘Housewife’ on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ and I am thankful for Bravo for the opportunity but it’s not goodbye, you will see me on the show throughout the season sharing and bonding with the other women and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life,” she wrote, via E! News.

RHOBH’ Season 5 Cast Allegedly Demands Brandi Glanville be Fired

21 Dec

Classicalite.com:

Coming as a shock to absolutely no one even vaguely familiar with her Bravo antics, rumor has it that Brandi Glanville is no longer welcome on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as far as the rest of the cast are concerned. According to the latest gossip news updates, Donald Trump’s drunk Celebrity Apprentice has so upset the ladies in Season 5 that they are ready to band together to ensure that she’s fired. In a related story, Lisa Rinna has come to Yolanda Foster and her daughter, Bella Hadid’s DUI defense. The Melrose Place alum reminded the reality TV show’s audience that everyone makes mistakes.

Sure, Brandi Glanville may have slapped a face or two during her tenure on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it’s not like she’s the only one that decided to express their anger in physical way in Season 5, so it seems a little silly to single her out.

According to the a source who spoke in Life & Style’s latest December 29, issue, that is exactly what the rest of the Bravo ladies are trying to do, however.

The behind-the-scenes informant told the publication that some of the ladies were actually planning to form a union and demand she be kicked off the show:

“At this point, Brandi hardly has a friend on the show…Yolanda is really the only one who tolerates her.
“Everyone is so over her, especially Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards.

“They think she is a toxic addition to the group and want her gone!”

If the cast is really that upset with Brandi as a whole, it would sure come as a shock to her.

Glanville told People that she was pretty sure that she knew how to handle a disgruntled Housewife at this point in her reality TV career:

“Number one: Compliments will get you everywhere.

“Number two: Fix their weave — that always helps.

“Number three: tell them how smart they are. Even if you don’t mean it.”

If this is true (and God can only hope it is)…here’s an easy solution: take Brandi off ‘RHOBH’ and give her her own show. After all, Kim Zolciak wasn’t getting along with anyone on ‘RHOA’ right before she left and not only has both Kim and ‘RHOA’ thrived since they’ve been apart, but no one besides NeNe misses KIm on ‘RHOA’. Supposedly Brandi has a ton of her own friends, she’s still forever hating on her ex-husband and his talented wife and idiot Brandi stans are lurking everywhere. Taking the toxic Brandi Glanville off ‘RHOBH’ and giving her a show would make ‘RHOBH’ watchable again, satisfy her co-stars who’ve more than had enough of her, allow Brandi to keep getting a paycheck and probably be a win-win for Bravo. So just do it already….please!!!

Phaedra Parks: ‘I Would Love’ for the Kids to Visit Apollo in Jail for Christmas

20 Dec

People.com:

One place Phaedra Parks is planning to visit this holiday season? Prison.

When TMZ cameras asked the Real Housewives of Atlanta star if she was planning to let sons Ayden, 5, and Dylan 19 months, visit her estranged husband Apollo Nida in jail over the holidays, Parks made it clear there’s no more bad blood between the two.

“I would love to,” she said. “I have sent him a Christmas card and everything. I speak to him all the time.”

While the former couple seems to be on amicable terms now, tensions flared between the two when Nida landed in hot water with law and was sentenced to serve eight years in jail for fraud back in July.

“Life is extremely difficult right now,” said Parks, after skipping out on Nida’s sentencing. “Apollo’s actions are the ultimate betrayal … I thought he was a changed man.”

After months of speculation, the Bravo star officially announced her split from her former husband in October.

“Phaedra has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage,” her rep, Steve Honig, told PEOPLE.

And despite having initial doubts about bringing her children to visit Nida behind bars, the mom of two has changed her tune for now. As she previously said, “If taking them to a prison is going to traumatize them, I’m not going to do it.”
